BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,11TH APRIL 2018-The woes facing former transport cabinet secretary Engineer Micheal Kamau are still far than over after Anti-Corruption Court allowed the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to probe him afresh f over alleged abuse of office and flouting of tender rules.
Justice Hedwig Ongudi on Wednesday declined to allow his application to be acquitted, ruling his appeal before the Appellate Court was allowed on a technical ground that EACC was not properly constituted at the time it completed the investigations and forwarded its report and recommendations to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
“It was not based on the manner the investigations were carried out or the innocence of Mr Kamau. That is why the Court of Appeal did not get into the substance of the investigations undertaken by the EACC,” ruled Justice Ongudi.
The former CS has been in the spotlight since his name featured in in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s list of shame that was presented to Parliament on March 26, 2015.He has since been investigated on corruption allegations relating to the time when her served in the ministry.
Kamau is accused of abuse of office as well as plundering public funds during his tenure in office especially in the first term of the jubilee administration.He was asked to step aside following the same accusations before his tenure came to an end.
